New Pics Flex and Off Road

I finally got some good photos today!

I didn't have to work today and I got my stuff I ordered, new emblems and splash guard for the drivers side. It was looking good so I rinsed the truck off and decided to go ***** my truck off through town to pick up some fire wood from my parents property.

















This unassuming hill is kind of tough coming back down. theres three trees in the way of getting a good approach. I came within an inch of rubbing one with the back end and teetered on two wheels for a second.









I did have a problem with my truck not disengaging from 4low. It only disengaged after I put it in neutral and let it roll back some. whats up with that?
Also i would like to use one of these as my new avatar, which one should I use?

To disengage 4lo, stopped with foot held on the brake, put it in neutral, click it to 4hi and wait a few seconds, you'll usually hear it click back over, then put it in 2wd, roll back in reverse a good 50ft or so and go forward, this will take it out of 4wd at the case completely. Just for future reference. Most people don't give it the time it needs to have the computer switch the t-case motor from 4lo to 4hi.

Good pics though!

Thanks for the good info Tre. Really good to know. I just thought it worked like 4hi does on-the-fly.

Anyone else wanna voice there opinion on which image I should use as my avatar? Im still undecided.

I would really like to get Mickey Thompson Classic Locks and 33" MTZ but I might have to settle for the Mickey Classic II's and 32" BFG's for now anyways. Im still aways away from having the money though.
